Bioethanol Market is projected to reach USD 44,396.5 Million by 2023 with 4.61% CAGR during review forecast time period Report: by Raw Material (Maize, Wheat, Industrial Beet, Sugarcane, Cereals & Starch, Others), by Application, and Region - Forecast till 2023

Bioethanol Market Synopsis:

Market Research Future (MRFR) postulates that the global bioethanol market is slated to garner USD 44,396.5 million, grabbing a CAGR of 4.61% during the forecast period (2018-2023). Over the last few years, the bioethanol market has grown by leaps and bounds owing to the scarcity of fossil fuels. An alternative to petrol, bioethanol is a biofuel which is generally obtained from natural sources such as maize, sugarcane, and corn.

However, with the emergence of second and third generation biofuel technologies, dependence on food crops for the production of bioethanol has decreased. Manufacturers are concentrating on utilizing forest and agricultural residues along with energy crops like switchgrass, miscanthus, and sugarcane bagasse for the production of bioethanol.

Market Potential and Pitfalls:

With the growing realization regarding the scarcity of fossil fuels across the world coupled with the need to develop bio-based alternatives, which can reduce the dependency on fossil fuels and present an environmentally viable option at the same time, the bioethanol market is estimated to expand throughout the appraisal period. The market’s course is chiefly directed by the increased environmental concerns resulting in an inclination towards bioethanol production, abundant availability of raw materials, and mandates by the regulating bodies such as EPA. The emergence of second and third generation biofuels are considered to create huge growth opportunities in the bioethanol market in the coming years.
Bioethanol is gradually stealing the spotlight due to the surging demand from the transportation sector owing to biofuel mandates by the regulatory bodies.

Moreover, with the growing concern associated with the rising emission and pollution by the greenhouse gases, the market for bioethanol is estimated to flourish. Conventional fuels such as diesel and petrol emit a huge amount of greenhouse gases owing to which bioethanol has become an extensively popular alternative to be used in combination and isolation of traditional fuels. Additionally, governments are highly investing in the production of bioethanol and are setting up the required infrastructure for its large-scale adoption, which is further influencing the market growth to a large extent.

On the contrary, issues related to food crops for the production of fuel coupled with the high investment cost of cellulosic ethanol are some of the major concerns likely to deter the market’s course during the appraisal period. Moreover, concerns associated with the scarcity of food along with the use of food crops are further hindering the market growth across the globe.
